UNICEF-SAWM Partnership and Dissemination of Adolescent Voices
Unicef-SAWM India Media Initiative
In order to capture voices on adolescents, UNICEF has partnered with the South Asian Women for Media (SAWM INDIA), a pan-South Asia network of women journalists working in – print, TV, web and radio to cover adolescent stories and voices across India.
What sets this partnership apart from other initiatives in the past, is that we not only facilitated field visits for identified case studies by states but also supported the women journalists to cover field stories of their own choice. Data on adolescents and key areas to focus upon, were shared in a pre-briefing session for all the SAWM INDIA members.
